Welcome, fellow cannabis enthusiasts, to a tantalizing journey through the cosmos of flavor and relaxation! Today, we’re going to explore an out-of-this-world recipe that combines the nostalgic charm of butterscotch with the soothing effects of cannabis. Buckle up, because we’re about to take your taste buds on a cosmic ride with these Butterscotch Space Pops.
Before we launch into the culinary adventure, let’s take a look at the star-studded cast of ingredients you’ll need:
For the Cannabis-Infused Butter:
- 1/2 cup of unsalted butter
- 1/2 oz of your preferred cannabis strain (decarboxylated and finely ground)
- 1 cup of water
For the Butterscotch Space Pops:
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup of light corn syrup
- 1/2 cup of water
- 1/4 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 cup of cannabis-infused butter
- 1/2 teaspoon of butterscotch extract
- Food coloring (optional)
- Cannabis leaf-shaped molds (for that celestial touch)
Making Cannabis-Infused Butter:
In a saucepan, combine your finely ground cannabis and water. Simmer over low heat for 2-3 hours, stirring occasionally. This process will activate the cannabinoids.
Strain the mixture through a cheesecloth or fine mesh strainer into a container, squeezing out as much liquid as possible.
In a clean saucepan, melt the unsalted butter over low heat.
Add the strained cannabis infusion to the melted butter and simmer for an additional 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat, let it cool slightly, and then strain it again to remove any remaining plant material.
Creating Butterscotch Space Pops:
In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine granulated sugar, corn syrup, water, and salt.
Stir the mixture over medium heat until the sugar dissolves completely.
Once the mixture reaches a boil, insert a candy thermometer and let it cook without stirring until it reaches 300°F (150°C). This is the hard crack stage.
Remove the saucepan from heat and stir in the cannabis-infused butter and butterscotch extract. Be cautious; the mixture will bubble up when you add these ingredients.
If you desire, add a few drops of food coloring to achieve your desired cosmic hue.
Carefully pour the butterscotch mixture into cannabis leaf-shaped molds. Allow it to cool and solidify.
